#1. EVA LONGORIA

TV show: Desperate Housewives

Without The Young and the Restless and Desperate Housewives, how else would we have come across the former Mrs. Eva Longoria Parker? Her feisty role on ABC's Desperate Housewives is undeniably the reason she's currently referred to as "the ideal woman" by males of all age groups (including pre-teens and senior citizens). See guys, the lesson learned here is that you shouldn't knock your girlfriend's TV shows; it's not like Longoria will star in The Expendables 2
